This Friday, February 1, from 6pm to 9pm, Lille Boutique will be hosting the first in a series of art shows coinciding with First Friday on East Burnside. “New Work in Fibers” by Portland native, Sarah E. LaBarre will kick off the series. Investigating the parallels between craft and fine art, Sarah’s elegant work features delicate embroidery on colorful, hand-dyed vintage fabric. You now know my secret passion for embroidery, so as you can imagine, this artwork really hits home for me. I would love to have a LaBarre hanging in every room of my house! The pieces manage to be strong and direct while still maintaining a sensual femininity, not unlike the embroidered loungewear by Dessous and the hand-made lace lingerie by Elise Aucouturier.
We admire Sarah’s unique eye for composition and independent spirit, and we think you will too! For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you at the opening reception, but if you’re not able to make it that night, feel free to stop by anytime during the month of February while the show is up.
